The Jets just made 10 draft picks, and now they’ve added nine undrafted rookies. The following players make up New York’s first UDFA class of the Robert Saleh era, via Ralph Vacchiano of SNY (Twitter link).
- Isaiah Dunn, CB (Oregon State)
- Michael Dwumfour, DT (Rutgers)
- Brendon White, S (Rutgers)
- Kenny Yeboah, TE (Ole Miss)
- Hamilcar Rashed, DE (Oregon State)
- Teton Saltes, OL (New Mexico)
- Milo Eifler, LB (Illinois)
- Tristen Hoge, OL (BYU)
- Grant Hermanns, OT (Purdue)
- Parker Ferguson, OT (Air Force)
- Chris Naggar, K (SMU)
- Jordyn Peters, S (Auburn)
The Jets clearly had competition for Yeboah. New York gave him a whopping $200K in guaranteed money with a $20K signing bonus and $180K base salary guarantee, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network tweets. Chris Herndon led the Jets’ tight ends with 287 yards in 16 games last year, so it’s not surprising to see them taking flyers like this. Yeboah had 524 yards and six touchdowns in only seven games for Ole Miss in 2020.
The team also gave Dunn $185K guaranteed, Aaron Wilson tweets. Wilson reports it’s the biggest guarantee ever for an undrafted cornerback. They also gave Saltes $93K guaranteed, Wilson tweets.
With only Chase McLaughlin and Sam Ficken on the roster the Jets don’t have a firmly entrenched kicker, so Naggar could have a real shot at winning the job. He’s got a video on Twitter of him hitting a 71-yarder.
